I don’t often use Kickstarter. In total I’ve only backed three projects and to date none of them have shipped. I always consider a Kickstarter a bit of a gamble and I plan accordingly. However, I did recently back Click on Kickstarter, an adapter that will allow you to use a standard 22mm band with an Apple Watch. The project is fully funded with over 20 days to go. They’ve recently added some new stretch goals including aluminum and stainless steel models.
While I have no doubt the Apple Watch bands are well made and gorgeous, they are very pricey. If I can buy a click adapter and pay a reasonable price for a standard watch band, in lieu of buying a $150 Apple Watch Band, I’ll likely come out ahead. For me that’s worth the gamble.
